“Portuguese composer Nuno Canavarro stands as one of the most underrated yet brilliant figures in the world avant-garde electronic music. As anyone who has immersed themselves in his 1988 masterpiece Plux Quba will tell you, Canavarro's ambient-laced compositions stand as a truly unique pieces of work, combining free-flowing electro-acoustic soundscapes with pre-IDM electronics of an entirely foreign yet comforting nature. And while his Plux Quba has rightly been reissued in recent years, Canavarro's frustratingly elusive follow-up Mr. Wollogallu is at last getting a much-deserved re-release…

…Carlos Maria and Nuno created everlasting music that contains an undeniable, enchanting mystery. Mr. Wollogallu features sophisticated, adventurous soundscapes that depict, in a manner both blurry and clear at the same time, ancient maps, distant travels and evocative landscapes, an alchemy of the acoustic and the electronic, created using techniques that were unusual at the time.” – Exclaim

“From samples and all sorts of instruments (most popularly marimba, vibraphone and flute) and some electronic elements such as the theremin, the two musicians have created something completely unique: Fourth World Ambient covered with a layer of caramel. Bittersweet music that moves like a glowing jellyfish in the sea…

…one cannot imagine how a human should have composed this music consciously. Actually, there should be something like this only in the dream. Actually, this is music that eludes any fixation. Music that appears once and then disappears again.” – HHV Mag
